10 Indicators You Are Decorating The Fish. To quote Steve Jobs: “People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” As a leader, how do you know what to say no to? In his presentation, Yishai provides 10 indicators that can help you quickly identify what initiatives and solutions you should avoid because, despite their allure, they will provide very little progress.
